On the Fifth Day of Christmas, Della Terra Teas sent me this tea!
Sorry for the gap in my “advent calendar” postings, but I came down with a bad bout of food poisoning (not that any bout of food poisoning is good, mind you), and I was not doing much of anything except for stuff I’d rather not talk about here in this atmosphere of polite company.
So, I left off with day four, and it’s time to talk about day 5 … Five Golden Rings … or one golden tea of Caramel. Caramel Oolong. and Mmm!
I didn’t pick up on a lot of citrus notes in this cup, I got a lot of caramel though, and a lot of the toasty flavor from the Oolong. That suited me just fine. Not that I have anything against citrus notes. I just wanted to experience the caramel.
One of the nicer flavored Oolong teas I’ve experienced in some time, except that I just reviewed the Tiramisu Oolong from 52Teas (to be published tomorrow evening) and it was pretty remarkable too.
